Wow, that's fantastic! And on seedlings no less -- what fun! I don't have any yet on plants in my garden, but I fertilized today and managed to do a scape hunt while I was at it, and I have scapes emerging on some of my recent arrivals: WHO LOVES BLUE, ART GALLERY ARROWHEAD, GLISTENING-GREEN TANAGER, JANE'S WONDERMINT, VANGUARD, SHADOW RITES (2), MARK'S BOUQUET, CHAOS CHOREOGRAPHY, HONEYSUCKLE SUMMER, CATHEDRAL OF LIGHT and ANGEL'S VIEW. I also had a few scapes emerging from other plants I recently received that ended up shriveling up -- bummer! But I'm very thankful to have these, and a couple of them are over a foot tall now -- Hurray! nodding

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! for scapes!

Betty that is a shame, perhaps real soon, you'll have plenty more to make up for those.

I too, have scapes showing up. Three were found last week and two more discovered yesterday. One on a seedling, it's second blooming season. Also, found one on New Paradigm. I expect more after this morning rain moves on and a bit of sun hits them.

Not unusual for the seedlings to bloom early when it is their first year to bloom. You must be having nice early spring weather. That is a large number of scapes for this early.
I am also in zone 7a and it was 25f this morning and sleet and snow forecast for Friday.
I found a scape with buds on one of my very early blooming daylilies but not sure it will survive the weather.

I'm seeing a few scapes emerge for spring, although they're probably too early to produce top-quality flowers.

A few early winter scapes are hanging in there, but now that the weather is evening out, their color is starting to approach something normal. Spring and fall present favorable opportunities for daylilies, partly because the nights tend to hold warmth well into the evening—something that rarely happens at peak bloom in late June,—and because warm gentle rains assist flower opening and color richness.

Last year I had no rebloom on 'Guy's Outrageous' from Floyd Cove (planted fall 2016), but late this winter it threw a scape which has been blooming for a few weeks. Most of the flowers have been half-openers, but today's wasn't bad.
